"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
-
Martin Luther King, Jr.

It was more than 50 years ago (August 23, 1963) that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered this speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to a group of more than 200,000 supporters. It was truly a defining moment for the American Civil Rights Movement, and this speech has become Dr. King's legacy as it continues to educate, inform and inspire people throughout the world, including those unborn generations.

How about you? Do you have a dream? More specifically, do you have an IAAP  dream? Could it be a dream to be certified; a dream to become an IAAP influencer; a dream to serve as a Branch Advisor; a dream to start-up a LAN; a dream to attend TEC 15; a dream to serve on the IAAP Board of Directors; a dream to be a member of a working group; a dream to GROW IAAP; a dream to attend an event at all 29 branches; a dream to join the Leadership Academy; a dream to attend IAAP Summit 2015.

Whatever that dream may be, keep it high your list of priorities and think of it often, daily. Truly believe, with a sincere heart and with intent that you will accomplish or make that dream a reality. What are the steps that you can take, plans that you can devise, help that you can solicit, resources that you can tap on to realize your dream?


On January 20 
registration opens to IAAP 2015 Summit - the premier annual event for IAAP members and affiliates worldwide. Although the Summit (fka EFAM) is an annual event, this year's Summit will be exceptionally special and historical as the new and revitalized IAAP makes its debut. How can you not be in Louisville, Kentucky to experience and witness this event first-hand? Can you hear the buzz of admins as they re-connect with old friends and engage in lively conversation with new ones? Can you feel the electricity of 1200+ administrative professionals and hear the thunderous applause as International President Antoinette Smith, CAP-OM is introduced and makes her way to the podium? I know that you want to be there and to be a part of IAAP history as it unfolds at the
Kentucky International Convention Center
  in downtown Louisville. Are you feeling it? Are you feeling the excitement of Summit 2015 and Louisville? Remember, great things happen when you focus your energies on your dream destination; you begin to locate and discover solutions for the journey along the way.

So let's begin by looking at accommodations. There are three (3) hotels connected via skywalk to the convention center and eight other hotels within six blocks surrounding the center. Of course, the three official guest hotels for Summit 2015 are the ones with the skywalk connection and they are (in alphabetical order):

Galt House                          Hyatt Regency Louisville             Louisville Marriott Downtown
140 North 4th Street               311 South 4th Street                       280 West Jefferson Street
Louisville, KY 40202               Louisville, KY 40202                       Louisville, KY 40202
$175 Room Rate                    $179 Room Rate                            $181 Room Rate

Click on the hotel names to get a virtual tour of each property. The "headquarters" hotel will be the Louisville Marriott Downtown, located across the street from the convention center. Just next to the Marriott is the Hyatt Regency Louisville, and a short two blocks away (on the Ohio River side of the convention center) is the Galt House. For those who typically use motorized chairs/scooters to get around, I would recommend that you plan to stay at either the Marriott or the Hyatt instead of at the Galt House. Although all three hotels connect to the convention center by a skywalk, the one that connects the Galt House, is not straight and level but has several turns, as well as sections that go "uphill" and "downhill." The alternative to utilizing the skywalk would be to travel via the street level.

Here are some quick facts that may be helpful to you
  • All three summit hotels are a short 15-20 minute ride from the airport by taxi or shuttle.
  • Weather in July is warm and humid: average high of 87°, average low of 70°; humidity 50-90%
  • Louisville is in the Eastern time zone: daylight savings time is March-November
  • The city is flat and very walkable with more than enough attractions to entertain your family while you are in session and with a lot more for you to experience together with them when you are free.There's the Muhammad Ali Center, Slugger's Museum, KFC Yum! Center, Kentucky Science Center, Churchill Downs, Fourth Street Live, bourbon, mint juleps, Derby Pie, and the list goes on and on.

Attached is a diagram of the Coordinated Skywalks that connects downtown Louisville. This should give you a general idea of where the hotels and some of the attractions are located in reference to the convention center.

Now that you have a general idea of the city, be sure to access Summit 2015 on the web and discover the new and exciting experiences that IAAP has in store for you. Then let's start strategizing on how to get you there, how to make your dream a reality. Remember, dreams represent what you want, the desired end product; goals represent your plan or the means to get there, to achieve/realize your dreams. As you make your plans to your final destination, to Summit 2015, you'll find that the achievement of each goal along the way to your dream destination will provide you with encouragement, momentum and fulfillment. So let the journey begin!

I also find it challenging to participate in webinars with limited time frames.  We are international and members appreciate options to meet multiple time zones.  Doing so would likely capture a larger IAAP audience.

Subject: RE: Mark Your Calendars for this Free Webinar about Exciting IAAP Complete Office Companion
Message:
I am truly frustrated that the IAAP webinars are not being offered at multiple times.  This one occurs on a work day during working hours, as has every webinar that I have wanted to attend.  I am unable to attend these sessions.  Even if I were able to schedule my lunch break at the appropriate time, my work computer is blocked from logging into these sessions by our IT dept.  If IAAP is truly "committed to your professional development and want you to have control of who you meet and what you learn" (from the mentoring paragraph) then why does headquarters not offer multiple sessions for the webinars so that those of us who cannot attend during working hours can participate in the evening or on the weekend?
